Ottobre Hairstyling

A sneak peek at OTTOBRE Summer issue 3/2009

Fashion involves a lot more than just clothes and accessories. Hairstyling is can be great fun, and children too regard it as an important part of their overall appearance. Little girls love to play hairdressers, brushing each other’s hair and attaching hairpins and ribbons – just like in a real hair salon. Boys want to have a dab of gel on their hair to be able to twist it up in David Beckham style.







Lovely hair decorations for special occasions can be quickly and easily created from leftover dress fabric. We cut out butterflies and flowers from patterned fabric and ironed pieces of double-sided fusible web (Vlieseline® Vliesofix) onto their reverse side. After that we fused pieces cut from a more subdued area of the fabric to the reverse side. And then we just cut the shapes out along their outlines and attached them to the children’s hair with hairpins.

Dress and tablecloth fabric from Hilco’s summer 2009 collection.

It looks great. But its a pity I cannot buy any vliseline products here in Czech Rep. I´d love to use this double-sided fusible web.:(

Cute kids, cool hairstyles and fun clothing. I showed my 4 year girl the hair decorations and she just loves it.

I love the little boys outfit, that tie is so cheerful. My son would love his hair. The hair accessories are cute, and on my list of things to make right now. Cute flutter sleeves.

Just a suggestion for a future blog post but I would love to hear some ideas for organizing pattern piece tracings we make with Ottobre!

Thank you so much for the sneak peaks!! The children are adorable. I love their hairstyles and their outfits. Although I have been very busy sewing things from the spring issue, I can't wait to receive the summer issue! Ivy from Maine, USA

Too bad Hilco doesn't have an online shop. All we can access is the storefront photograph. I would love to have the opportunity to purchase some of their items, as would several of my American friends.
